Making Connections at IFT and Beyond

IFT – an event that TCG attends each year, including last week in Chicago – is the premier event for us to meet with all of our ingredient clients in one place at one time. It’s also a great way to visit potential new clients and meet candidates we have placed. It is so rewarding to put faces to names of people who have become good friends through purely phone/email conversations! One of the reoccurring themes when talking about talent is that everyone is in need of good people – Sales, R&D, Marketing – you name it, and companies are in deep need. Organizations are becoming more and more interested in how to attract top talent, share their story, inspire people and be competitive in order to

A shift in perspective – how to approach the interview from the other side

Employment Summary for June 2018

The U.S. saw yet another considerable monthly surge in the size of its labor force in June 2018. According to the Employment Situation Summary from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nonfarm payroll across all American industries added 213,000 jobs during the month. This is slightly less than May's tally of 223,000 new positions, but a strong number exceeding the median figure projected by a Bloomberg survey of economic experts, who expected approximately 195,000 jobs added. Although the unemployment rate rose from May to June - coming in at 4 percent after May's remarkably low figure of 3.8 percent - many are attributing this to growth in the labor force participation rate, which most recently

Ensuring Your Company has Strong Leaders, Not Bosses

Are leaders born or made? It's an interesting question that produces a plethora of answers. But here's something that isn't up for debate: People are naturally attracted to leaders.
